Steven Silvia, 61

Republican, Board of Education


Happily married 35 years, two children

Education: Samuel Clemens High School, Schertz, Texas. Graduated in 1974 as Steven Hanlon. I was adopted while in College. I attended Texas A&M University, class of 1979 and graduated with a Masters in Architecture, 1981.

Profession: Consultant - Technology

Public service: Brief experience as a Mayor, Hollywood Park, Texas prior to moving family to Connecticut.  Elected to BOE in 2015.

If elected, I hope to focus our limited resources (money) on the students/teachers, not things; work collaboratively with our Town Council, and consolidate redundant functions between our two governmental bodies. I am not afraid to challenge the status quo and question the rational why our system continues to be managed as if we are in the 1970’s.
